I actually received a rather involved shoulder surgery in November 2014. On top of that, I could not take pain medication. Dr Naidoo did a tremendous job in both insuring that I had a block for the 1st 3 days after surgery and quickly moving me into rehab (which seemed crazy at first - but am SO thankful for that). My shoulder is stronger than ever and I now am swimming 1+ miles a day and am able to do ALL strokes with no problems. *He was also very funny* Thank you SO much! Rebecca Balko

Dr. Naidoo is THE BEST! I saw FOUR other surgeons and no one could diagnosis me. Within 5 minutes of my visit, Dr. Naidoo did. I am pain-free in both shoulders and back to a VERY active lifestyle. Yes, you may wait to see him, but, it is worth it. His office staff isn't the absolute best, however, HE IS! Remember, the office staff isn't operating on you. He is also very involved in making sure you complete your PT, progress timely and have the best care.

Knee injury here. From day 1 Dr. Naidoo and his staff (Karen, Gifford, Madison, Sara) have been excellent. They are a fantastic team that are professional, prompt and go the extra mile for their patients. As an ICU nurse I know the ins and outs of healthcare and can honestly they have my highest regard and respect. Their practice has top of the line care and I am so happy I found them!!

I consulted 3 orthopedic surgeons about pain in my left shoulder. Dr. Naidoo was not consistent with the other 2. He recommended surgery, while the other two did not. I strongly suggest getting second or even third opinions until achieving majority or, even better, unanimity with regard to surgery recommendation.

It has been awhile since I have seen Dr. Naidoo because of insurance changes; however I have purposely changed to a PPO so that I could see him. I found he managed just the right amount of silent intimidation to make me follow his instructions. Normally, I do not trust a doctor's opinion as much as my own, but he managed to override that reluctance. (Of course after I had a try at my own resolution which failed miserably and which he knew it would). I am coming back soon.

I am a patient of Dr. Naidoo. He performed a total knee replacement in September of 2015. My recovery time was less than expected. Dr Naidoo is very professional, and informative. He did an awesome job. I will have my other knee replacement done soon on my other knee.
in Loxahatchee, FL |
After 4 knee surgeries with varying degrees of success, Dr. Naidoo performed a very successful total knee replacement. I now have no pain for the first time in 40 years. I was up and around ahead of schedule and was released from therapy 2 weeks early. Dr. Naidoo is the best.

Great compassionate Doctor. Explains everything. It took him 30 seconds to diagnose what other missed. MRI confirmed. Had been living in pain due to incompetence of other ortho. He has great credentials and is very personal. Office staff is very nice and I don't get where the other comments come from. How someone can leave this doctor 1 star as a punishment for lower level employees which come and go anyways. They don't do surgery and ultimately play minimal role in patient care
Wellington, FL |
I liked Dr. Naidoo very much. My knee replacement went well. He was very kind and helpful. He seems sincerely interested in my health. My knee was not only in bad shape,it was also very crooked. So nice to have straight legs! I am so glad that I had the surgery done! I would definitely recommend him!

This doctor is not professional, has no ethics or human values, for more than a month ago, he operated my arm broken, after surgery did not want to see me again, for the simple reason of not making process and documentation required to my insurance, which has no problem paying the surgery and post-operative care. I?m not recommend this Doctor to anyone, because it has made with me Client Abandonment, because after surgery last March 10th, 2016my arm immobilized with pain, cramps without care.

This doctor is not professional, has no ethics or human values, for more than a month ago, he operated my arm broken in the Palm West hospital, after surgery did not want to see me again, for the simple reason of not making process and documentation required to my insurance, which has no problem paying the surgery and post-operative care. This doctor is infatuated that I paid for myself surgery and every visit I might need. When I was hospitalized this doctor performed the surgery, and perfectly

Dr. Naidoo is not informative what so ever when dealing with his patients. He assumes they understand everything and gets frustrated when you are confused on what you should do after surgery. It stressed me out because all I want to know is what I should be doing in regards of staying healthy. Don't get me wrong, he is a nice guy but just not the type of surgeon that's adjusts go his patience's needs. I will most likely never recommend him to anyone. I was so excited when I was done visiting him

He was kind, well informed, always had my well being as a priority. Did my Knee surgery and all was a success. Motivated me to continue with my success and has a well oiled staff as his team.
